Swirls at FSC

I wanted a girly card for my DiL's birthday and came up with this. 


Pretty papers, the new Tim Holtz Cameo die, a chipboard dress form and other feminine pieces came together in a shabby vintage card.


I used the text stamp from the Tim Holtz Papillon set over white acrylic paint on the dress form and another of his stamps to create the little swirls on the cameo background, these I painted in with a Vintage Photo Distress Marker. There are also swirls printed on the pink backing paper as well.


We would love to see your swirl projects for the next fortnight at Fashionable Stamping Challenges, so please do pop over and while you are there have a look at all the other fabulous inspiration from my DT sisters.

Have a great Sunday and thanks for visiting my post.

Hello Brenda,
Your dress form looks fabulous, and adding the set of petals to the lace flower creates wonderful dimension.
I'm sure your DIL will be thrilled with the card.

What an awesome way to use the swirl! I love how they are hinting in around the edges of the frame, but the biggest swirl as the dress form stand is priceless! Love all your beautiful stamping, too.
